Password protected page not working

Hi there,

I am trying to password-protect some of my pages but when I try the function on an example page:
http://www.netzarroyo.org/lab-members-contact-information/
Pass: hola
clicking submit just won’t do anything.
I have tried deactivating all of my plugins but the problem did not get fixed. So I am guessing this could be related to the theme?

Coul you help me solve this issue?
Thanks!

Hi there

Thanks!

Dear Noda,

Thank you for your fast reply. I have activated twenty seventeen and the password protected page does work as expected. So, something to do with Activello?

Thank you for your help on this issue.

Hi,

I tried in my local installation all works just fine, you sure you’re on the latest version of the theme and the plugins? If still you didn’t figure out, can you pass us the WP Login details in a “Private reply” we will check what is going wrong.

Let us know,

Thanks,
laranz.

I look forward to hearing back from you,

Hi there

Please deactivate all third party plugins and try again your problem, most probably this I conflict with third-party plugins.
Once you deactivate all plugins please check your problem again, if the problem is gone then this means it was a plugin conflict. Now, start activating plugins one by one and same time repeat your problem until your problem appears again, now you know which plugin was in conflict Thanks!

Dear Noda,

I just deactivated all of my plugins, tried the password protected page again, and it didn’t work. It only works if I switch to a different theme (even with plugins on), which suggests to me that there is an issue with my theme.

Thank you for your help so far.

Good evening

This is very strange, when i try this on the fresh theme an fresh WordPress i cant replicate the problem,
do you have any modifications done in the theme?

Hi Noda,

Not really, I am using the Colorlib child theme where I have modified the footer only. I have the following CSS customizations:

.site-navigation-inner .nav-search {
display: none;
}

.page .entry-title {
display: none;
}

.wp-caption,
.thumbnail {
border: none;
}

.container .page {
margin-top: -60px;
}

div#logo {
left: auto;
}

#page #logo {
padding: 0;
}

#masthead #line {

display: none;
}

#colophon .copyright {
display:none

}

#colophon {
font-family: ‘Lora’, serif;
font-size : 15px;
color : #525252;
}

body {
color: #000000;
background-color: #FFFFFF;
word-wrap: break-word;
font-family: ‘Lora’, serif;
line-height: 2;
font-size: 16px;
}

div.wpcf7 {
background-color: #FFFFFF;
border: 1px solid #EAEAEA;
padding: 20px;
}
.wpcf7 input[type=“text”],
.wpcf7 input[type=“email”],
.wpcf7 textarea {
background:#FFFFFF;
color:#000000;
font-family:Arial, sans-serif;
font-weight:normal;
font-size: 14px;
width: 200%;
}
.wpcf7 input[type=“submit”],
.wpcf7 input[type=“button”] {
background-color:#FFFFFF;
border: 1px solid #EAEAEA;
text-align:center;
text-transform:uppercase;
font-family:Lora, sans-serif;
font-weight:bold;
color:#000000;
}
.wpcf7 input[type=“file”] {
text-align:center;
font-family:Lora, sans-serif;
font-weight:normal;
color:#000000;
font-size: 14px;
}

But I don’t think they should interfere with the password-protected page configuration. And that’s pretty much it.

Hi,

Is the directory where Wordpress is installed is different from the Site Address URL? You can see that in Settings -> General.

Did you try any .htaccess changes?

Let us know,

Thanks,
laranz.

Hi Laranz,

Thank you for your reply. I have checked my settings/general and the two URLs are the same. I have not tried any changes to .htaccess.

I can’t see any password-protected posts on that blog at all. Are you sure you Updated after marking them Password-protected? How did you do your password protection, step by step?

Guys,

Thank you for all your help, I am giving up. The password protection is not absolutely necessary for me, it clearly isn’t a simple problem, and I don’t want to waste more time on this issue. I will simply not use the functionality.

Thank you for all of your kind suggestions.

I created a page for my subscribers. When I preview the page and enter the password nothing happens. I also tried publishing the page to see if that would make it work, but it didn’t. Any reason why this part wouldn’t work because of the Activello theme?

Hi there
